The Nationals are hiring Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez as their next manager, reports Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.
The team will announce the hiring following the conclusion of the World Series, according to Heyman. Kevin Long was given permission to interview for the job and the Nationals interviewed former Red Sox manager John Farrell.
Martinez spent 16 seasons in the league as a player from 1986-2001 and most recently served as Joe Maddon's bench coach since 2008.
Combined with the Mets' hiring of Mickey Callaway, the NL East now has filled all of its managerial vacancies with the exception of the Phillies, who have yet to replace Pete Mackanin.
